This post is long overdue, especially since the Balloon Glow was oooh, 2 weeks ago.
Indianola has a hot air balloon festival every year in August, which is funny because I grew up in New Mexico and Albuquerque has a balloon fiesta every year in October. I once heard that the balloon fiesta in Albuq. stemmed from the one that began in Indianola, but I don't know how true that is.
The festival lasts a week and includes a balloon glow. It's held at dusk and involves the crowd counting to 3 to get the balloons to light up. It's pretty neat and Sweet P LOVED it this year. She kept saying "1, 2, 3 GLOW!!!!!"
